Here are a few tips to rapidly gain this achievement.

1, When respawning enemies, instead of going to the Medbay terminal go to Gear Assembly terminal. This not only respawns enemies it allows banking of tech but most important keeps your tech multiplier active. This multiplier makes a massive difference.

2, Equip as many Reclamation Buddy implants as possible. Don't destroy lower level one's, they all stack. This is the second major boost.

3, Do this in gradual stages. I usually farmed just before a boss fight. Usually stopping once I unlocked the nearest implant slot. Doing this in stages means you won't have to sit for ages trying to get one achievement.

4, Equip as many Vital Injections as you can. The Gear Assembly won't restore your health. Only visit medbay chair once health is depleted. Once your health injections are restored your tech multiplier is reset.

5, Location is important. I usually farmed near the Medbay centres. This way recovering tech is easier and it's quicker to respawn enemies. Remember too Bank your tech particularly if you are progressing through the level. If you don't want to refight all those enemies just bank it in gear assembly then return to your location

6 Best Spot - So far the best location I have found is around the Executive Forum Medbay after visiting the Boardroom. There are 3 Gorgon Security guards in a room to the right and a security bot to the left. With the Reclamation Buddy implants these 4 enemies alone drop a minimum of 10.00 Tech Scrap and severing the bots tail nets an implant which gives a further 2.00 when destroyed. If you keep the multiplier going you can easily earn more then 20.00 scrap per 4 enemies.

Here is a video of the location. I leveled from 65 to 75 in well under an hour.
